Yes. Every 12-14 hours your refrigerator goes through an automatic defrost to clear the ice from the evaporator. The hissing sound your hearing is the water dripping on to a burning hot element.

No Worries.

What is hissing sound and is leaking


Hissing may be air rushing into the cooling (contracting air mass) inside the air box after door closing. The leaking is all the extra water being removed from that outside air intruding into the compartment because of a leaking door seal.

Water heater makes a constant hissing noise with power on or off?


You have a water leak under the house, but need to know if it's a gas heater or electric. check the Pop off valve on top of the tank it has a short handle and should go threw the floor pull up on the valve and let it sit back down, if it stops the high pressure pop off valve is leaking, you can buy it and replace it for 5 or 10 bucks, if that does not stop it look under the house. Also use a broom stick and put the round end at the wall and the other end near your ear and check the wall and floor for the noise the closer you get the louder the sound. Hope this helps. If you look under the house and see water you know you got a leak in the pipes or the tank itself.

Water / hissing noice


Sounds like the water-supply fitting/connection going into the icemaker is leaking. It needs to be removed and fitting/hose tightened/repaired/etc.
